On November 4th and 5th Mount High School and Middle School theater will present the first play of the 2016-17 school year: Once Upon a Mattress.
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and just deserts provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
The musical, “Once Upon a Mattress”, will be held on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5 at 7:30pm in the Mount Vernon High School Theater. This production of “Once Upon a Mattress” features a cast of 30 students, with middle and high school performers.
Tickets are $8 for reserved seating. Tickets can be purchased at the door at each performance or by calling or texting Kati Bockover at (740) 627-0664. Tickets will also be sold in the theater lobby on Monday, October 31 through Thursday, November 3 from 6:30pm- 8:30pm.
